Web series blow. Anyone worth their pepper has a real series… on television.
But I'm going to give Zach Galifianakis a pass. Not because he's a big movie star who could be doing better things, nor because his web series "Between Two Ferns" is actually quite funny, but because he's in the bearded brotherhood. Battle on, brother! Even if you must battle on on the Internet.
Crazy enough though, Between Two Ferns is reaching real talk show like status. Though Zach has had no problem getting big name actors on in the past, this edition features a serious movie plug for Ben Stiller's upcoming film, Greenberg. That's the kind of corporate sellout usually reserved for network television! Has Galifianakis found the key to Internet success? Possibly.
The plug is certainly doing its job. I even took the time to look up Greenberg. Turns out it's a movie about a Jew.
